    Misfiring only sometimes agu 1.8t

    On the odd occation my car use to misfire well it's done it's twice but once I turn it off and bk on it used to stop it now it doesn't I start the car an it either runs like **** or it fine , I've checked the coil packs wen it's running an they all fire except number 3 ( if u count number 1 from the cam belt ) I swapped 2and. 3 over to see if it was the coil or plug died , and it was neither the coil from 2 will not spark in 3's place which is weird , I checked to make sure none of the wire have come off the plug or the coil but nothing that I can see no burns tears or nothing , is there a knock sensor or any other sensorsthat can cause this , many thanks chris

    ICM is on the airfilter box... vibrations etc affect them and its common for the internal wiring to break... its not realistically a fixable component as the internals are sealed and potted so normally requires a new ICM unit
